Governments, cities, and businesses face significant challenges related to population growth, resource demands and constraints, and extreme weather events that impact the resiliency and sustainability of our communities. WSP is committed to integrating the principles of sustainability into our work in planning, designing, and managing both property and infrastructure.

As the sustainability agenda has progressed, many organizations have recognized that sustainability can be a value driver and differentiator in the marketplace. Our technical knowledge and multidisciplinary experience allows us to successfully guide clients through strategy, design and implementation. We help clients take action and see results.

Our sustainability strategy services include:

  • Benchmarking and maturity assessments: We evaluate company sustainability efforts relative to peers and other sustainability leaders to help guide program focus and direction.
  • Operational assessments: We assess company operations, identifying opportunities to reduce cost and mitigate risk across energy, waste, water and other sustainability impacts.
  • Program design and strategic planning: We help align sustainability with corporate goals and priorities, define mission, vision and policy statements, establish program governance and create strategic plans. We also provide seconded resources as dedicated program support.
  • Supply chain management: We conduct product life cycle assessments (LCAs), scope 3 greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories, regulatory compliance evaluations and supplier sustainability assessments to better understand and respond to supply chain risks and opportunities.
  • Public reporting and communications: We develop sustainability disclosures that provide a balanced perspective on company performance while engaging external stakeholders. We support our clients in assessing materiality, identifying appropriate reporting outlets (e.g., CDP Climate Change, Water, and Supply Chain, DJSI, EcoVadis, GRESB Real Estate and Infrastructure, GRI, etc), prioritizing stakeholder requests, interpreting key performance data and developing report content.
